Rolex Day-Date White Gold

Rolex Day-Date White Gold

The Rolex Day-Date is synonymous with class, style and success.  

Originally released in 1956, the Day-Date quickly became Rolex's flagship watch, similar in design to its siblings in the Oyster lineup, but featured a Day wheel calendar across the top of the dial, a feature that has helped the watch stand apart.  

Produced only in precious metals, the Day Date is an alluring mix of practicality and formal wear; at once, it is both incredibly apt for daily wear yet luxurious, befitting a very specific ilk of gentleman for whom a watch should be comfortable in every environment and impressive in any situation. 

While sometimes paired with a hidden-clasp bracelet referred to as a 'Presidential Bracelet', many find that a wrist full of gold is far too ostentatious, and while there certainly are exceptions, likely lacking a bit of class.  Still, the presidential feel of the watch is unmistakeable  - particularly due to the weight that a precious metal adds to the case.  Even in white gold, which can appear (to the untrained eye) identical to steel, the wristfeel of the Day-Date is without equal.

This white gold Day-Date is in stunning condition, and where the vast majority of Day-Dates have been destroyed by careless wear and even more careless refinishing, this example retains a very strong case belying it's age.  And with it's crisp silver dial and sharp baton hands, there is no mistaking that this is a stunningly subtle execution of one of Rolex's crown jewels.


18K White Gold Oyster case is approximately 36mm (excluding crown). Reference 1803. Circa 1967.

Overall Condition: The case is in excellent condition over all, with light signs of wear from age and use, and has not been over-polished. The silver sunburst dial is devoid of any glaring marks or defects, and bears a gorgeous even patina. Printing on day and date wheels is crisp. Genuine replacement hand set. Original case back and signed crown.

Includes one genuine Rolex Alligator Leather strap with Rolex-signed buckle.
